FBI on the hunt after ‘pretty big’ bank robbery on the North Side

Chicago — The FBI is trying to track down two men who robbed a North Side bank at gunpoint on Monday afternoon. A Chicago police supervisor who responded to the scene said the bank’s initial estimate of the loss was “pretty big” — $112,000.

Two heavily-clothed men entered Huntington Bank, 2920 West Peterson, at 4:40 p.m. and verbally demanded cash while displaying firearms, according to the FBI.

The offenders loaded money into a white plastic bag and were last seen heading north from the bank. A witness reported that the pair left the area in a gray Jeep with no license plates.

Police evidence technicians processed the bank, including the vault area, after the robbery.

The FBI said the robbers were thin Hispanic men in their 20’s who stood between 5’9″ and 5’11” tall.
